Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Got the following problem: I use the software "terminalemulation" to connect a Windows XP-PC to a Red Hat Linux-PC (7.x / Enterprise 3). With some PCs it is very fast, but with other ones, it takes a very long time, till I can enter the password (user is given from the terminalemulation). From other Linux PCs it's done in a normal time. I assume that I have to change something within /etc/pam.d/rlogin ?
This is my /etc/pam.d/rlogin:
# For root login to succeed here with pam_securetty, "rlogin" must be
# listed in /etc/securetty.
auth required /lib/security/pam_nologin.so
auth required /lib/security/pam_securetty.so
auth required /lib/security/pam_env.so
auth sufficient /lib/security/pam_rhosts_auth.so
auth required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
account required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
password required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
session required /lib/security/pam_stack.so service=system-auth
This is what I get from /var/log/messages when logging in from a Windows PC (10.0.10.244 is my Windows PC):
Mar 21 10:46:04 ts-linux login(pam_unix): session closed for user root
Mar 21 10:46:40 ts-linux pam_rhosts_auth: denied to @10.0.10.244 as root: access not allowed
Mar 21 10:46:42 ts-linux login(pam_unix): session opened for user root by (uid=0)
Mar 21 10:46:42 ts-linux login -- root: ROOT LOGIN ON pts/0 FROM 10.0.10.244
How must I configure the system ? Yes, I know that rlogin is obsolete, please no such hints...
